Dobell Exhibition Grants

The Dobell Exhibition Grant program provides financial assistance towards the development of new, curated exhibitions of visual arts at regional galleries in New South Wales. The program aims to support high quality exhibitions that speak to a broad audience across NSW. To assist in expanding appreciation for the visual arts, the proposed exhibition should be supported by innovative public and education programs that creatively engage both artists and the community. Exhibitions supported previously include Lismore Regional Gallery, From Here to There: Australian art and walking; Newcastle Art Gallery for their exhibition SODEISHA: Connected to Australia; Notes from the Field at Murray Art Museum Albury and Maitland Regional Art Gallery’s exhibition Shadow Boxer.

Two amounts available: $30,000 or $10,000

Closing date: 1 September 2022, 5.00pm

There are two categories $30,000 and $10,000 – applicants should select which amount they would like to apply for depending on the scale of their project and support required.
